Nishikori again going for the down the line backhand, but it arrows wide for 0-15. Just supreme power coming off the Del Potro forehand, that was a majestic series of shots and it brings up TWO MATCH POINTS for the Argentine....

BOTH SAVED! Forehand into the net, and an unforced error as another goes flying wide. Deuce.

Wide on the forehand from Nishikori as he tries to go up the line, it's another MATCH POINT... Saved again as Del Potro fires a forehand past the baseline.

Del Potro makes the same error on the next point, AD Nishikori, but AGAIN he curves his backhand wide. He's so frustrated with himself. Deuce. Long from Nishikori on a forehand, 4th MATCH POINT...

SAVED. Nishikori shaves the outside edge of the line with an ace. Deuce again.

Wow. Incredible fight from Kei! Dives at a forehand, just about gets it over, Del Potro is there at the net, but Nishikori has the height on the lob and Delpo can only watch it drop onto the baseline! AD, a forehand from Del Potro falls long and Nishikori rescues the hold. 5*-2. Del Potro to serve for the match.

Del Potro cracks a first serve out wide for 30-15, and an ace to follow up. TWO MATCH POINTS... First is saved, wild on a forehand from Delpo.

GAME SET MATCH, JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO, 6-2 6-2. Probably as one sided a match as you'll see between these two, Nishikori is still pretty fresh from his injury comeback and he's come across a Del Potro who is absolutely on fire right now.

Reckon DelPo is going to take some stopping!

So, Del Potro safely through to face Filip Krajinovic in the 4th round. Can anyone stop the big man?! It certainly seems like the Sunshine Double is well within reach for him. That's all for me, I've been Hannah, thanks for following!
